Anyone heard about this yet? Apparently Amazon is going to start producing a Game of Thrones-like TV series set in Middle-earth. This will NOT be based on any of Tolkien’s writing, but will take place before the events of The Fellowship of the Ring, as I understand it. For myself, I’m not sure what to think, but I’m skeptical. I’m a great fan of the books, but didn’t care at all for the Hobbit movies. Somehow, I’m expecting it to be sort of like all those Hobbit movie subplots that were used to pad out that story. Anyway, what do you all think?
